Senior-Friendly Tour of Indianapolis

With the recent growth to our state, Indiana has developed into an activity-filled location that’s perfect for senior citizens and their caregivers. Oftentimes, we can get caught up in our daily routines and forget about the variety of fun that Indianapolis has to offer. But there are plenty of reasons to get out and explore! Below is your senior-friendly tour guide to the city.


Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra

An evening of music with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is always in season. There’s something on the calendar year-round because they have performances downtown and outdoors at Conner Prairie. Tickets for this year’s Symphony on the Prairie are on sale now. It’s never too early to plan ahead! Check out their website to start planning your visit for quality classical music or some other upbeat entertainment.


White River Gardens

There are more attractions than lions, tigers, and bears at the Indianapolis Zoo. And their grounds are also home to the beautiful White River Gardens. Spreading over 3 acres, this site is full of eye-catching flowers and plants. The garden designs change throughout the year, but you can always count on the vibrant tulip showcase in the spring.

The Indianapolis Museum of Art recently went through a rebranding: This Indy favorite is now known as Newfields! Newfields is buzzing with excitement this time of year as a perfect place for enjoying nature and the arts. The gardens are blooming, and there are plenty of Newfields activities hosted on the campus. Take a peek at their stunning online map to figure out where you want to visit first. On the weekends, you can make plans for a Lilly House Tour. Or, take a stroll through The Garden—it’s open every day except Monday.


Indianapolis Indians Game

Are you interested in some all-American sporting action? Now is the perfect time to get tickets for an Indianapolis Indians baseball game! Different promotions and events are planned through the team’s season finale. Review their schedule to see what day would be best for you and your loved ones. Victory Field has plenty of different seating options to accommodate your budget and needs. But if you have any questions, you can always call their box office at (317) 269-2282.


Madame Walker Theatre

The iconic Madame Walker Theatre Center is a real gem for the greater Indianapolis community. Now functioning as a non-profit, the center promotes education, social justice, and fantastic entertainment. The 2018-2019 season is in full swing with art shows every first Friday of the month. You can also contact the center to schedule a general tour. These events are by appointment only for a nominal fee. It’s a neat way to explore our city’s historic culture!


Other senior-friendly activities around Indianapolis are getting started all the time. Browsing websites like Groupon for Indianapolis events is a smart way to think outside of the box and get great deals on fun things to do around town.
